What To Do If Your Smartphone Is Not Detecting Your SD Card (Memory Card) 1
Sometimes your SD Card might stop showing on your phone but there’s still a way to fix the SD Card before you actually give up
What To Do If Your Smartphone Is Not Detecting Your SD Card (Memory Card) 2

Solution 1 – gently rub the SD card
Maybe the reason why your SD card isn’t being detected is because
it’s covered with dirt. Follow the steps below to clean it up.
Take your external memory card off your Android smartphone or
tablet. Make sure that your device is turned off as you do this.

Use a white colored rubber eraser to rub the copper piece ( gold
yellow color ) on your MicroSD card.
Once you’re quite sure it’s clean, plug it back into the memory
slot and then turn your android smartphone or tablet on.

With any luck, it should work now and you shouldn’t have any more
problems with your MicroSD card not being detected on your handset.
But if the problem persists, move on to the second solution below

.
Solution 2 – erase SD card
This is the part where you delete everything on your external storage.
Follow the steps below.
Open the ‘ Settings ’ app on your device and then go to Storage .
Find the ‘ Erase SD card ’ option and tap on it. This deletes all data
and makes it look like a new memory.
In many cases, completely erasing the SD card has solved the
problem. But if it doesn’t work for you, move on to the third possible
solution below.

Solution 3 – use your PC to diagnose
At this stage, you need to do something more technical than just
wiping your MicroSD card or erasing its data.

Connect your Android device to a PC or laptop via the USB cable.
Ensure that the device is connected as MSC (Mass storage
mode) , not MTP (Media transfer mode) .
Launch windows explore on your PC and right click on the
MicroSD card driver. In the options that appear, choose
Properties>Tools>Error Checking . Wait for the process to
complete.
After completion, eject your SD card and put it back into the
memory slot on your phone or tablet. Check whether it works.

Solution 4 – format your SD card
In the case that your MicroSD card is being detected on the PC, but
not showing on your smartphone, go ahead and try this fix.
Create a folder on your PC’s hard disk storage, and name it as
you like. This folder will be used as a temporary storage to
backup files on your damaged card.
Paste the entire content of your microSD card into this folder.

Format your microSD card.
Once the format process is complete, copy back your data from
the folder into the microSD card.
Put it into your phone and check whether it’s showing.

If it doesn’t work, try repeating the steps again.
For most Android devices, any of these fixes should clear the SD card
not detected issue. For some devices, though, the problem could be
much more complicated, and you need to explore solutions that are
specific to that device to get help.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 7

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

INFINIX SMART 3 Plus

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 10

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
